Crying inside? Creepy craze no joke for real clowns

http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_SCARY_CLOWNS_REAL_...

Quote:
This year's nationwide creepy clown craze has become a nightmare before Halloween for actual, working clowns, who say their bookings at parties and other events have dropped sharply, even after many of the social media-fueled scary clown sightings have turned out to be hoaxes.

Quote:
"It's definitely a scary feeling leaving your house, and you fear you are going to get jumped because you're dressed as a clown,"

Quote:
The World Clown Association - comprised of more than 2,000 members in 30 countries - has been flooded with calls from scared performers. It's been sending out safety tips, suggesting clowns consider changing into their costumes when they arrive at a party or go with a handler.

Quote:
Children in Ohio and Texas have been charged with making clown-related threats to school classmates.


So. A nationwide creepy clown craze. A World Clown Association. Clown-related threats.

Discuss.

They'll get these shoes when they pry them from my cold, over-sized feet.

One of the scarier things about clowns are their cars. They drive radically with no though about safety and have more passengers than seat belts... THINK of the children!

Target actually stopped selling creepy clown masks.

Quote:
South Carolina was creepy clown Ground Zero in August, when emergency calls from residents of Greenville County prompted deputies to search an apartment complex and the nearby forest for criminal clowns. A clown, or someone dressed like one, was “trying to lure children in the woods,” warned the property manager of Fleetwood Manor Apartments in Greenville.


Quote:
The creepy-clown craze has unnerved professional clowns, who say the pranks and threats have harmed their image. World Clown Association President Randy Christensen recently addressed the reports, saying that “whoever is doing this crazy stuff is not a clown.”
